Santa brought me one of my wishes. By way of my little sister.
The Babycakes donut maker. Almost as cute as my baby niece.
I had a little help mixing the ingredients.
The 6yo did most of the stirring, while the 2yo niece added the ingredients.
They were a big hit. But how could anything coated in butter and sugar be bad?
Admittedly, this one ate only the topping. She licked it off, took one bite, and claimed she was done.
- 1/3 C oil (I used a light EVOO)
- 1 C Sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/4 C buttermilk
- 1 t vanilla
- 2 C flour
- 4 t baking powder
- 1/2 baking soda
- 1/4 t salt
- 4 T melted butter
- 1/2 C sugar
- 1 T cinnamon
Beat sugar and oil, add eggs, buttermilk and vanilla. Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir dry ingredients into wet until just mixed. Pour into donut maker, and bake for 4 minutes.Mix cinnamon and sugar and place in a saucer or shallow bowl. Melt butter into a separate, similar dish. Dip donuts into melted butter, then into cinnamon sugar.
Note that you could probably make mini muffins out of these, if Santa didn’t bring you a donut maker. I’d bake at 375 for 10 minutes.
